The aim of this study was to retrospectively review our experience of performing simultaneous operations on concomitant diseases in the esophagus and lungs. From January 1998 to July 2009, simultaneous operations were performed on 13 patients with concomitant esophageal and pulmonary diseases, using coordinated surgical approaches. Among the 13 patients, six had primary cancers in the esophagus and lungs, five had primary esophageal cancer accompanied by a benign pulmonary disease, one had benign diseases in both esophagus and lung, and one had primary esophageal cancer with metastasis to the left lower lung. All patients survived the operations. Two major complications occurred postoperatively. One complication was bronchopleural fistula and the other was intrathoracic gastric laceration. Both patients recovered after additional treatments. Simultaneous operation of concomitant diseases in the esophagus and lungs is feasible and safe in selected patients who have received careful preoperative assessment, well-designed surgical approach, and proper perioperative management.
